Transparent menus – the key to growth in 2018?

17th November 2017

Are your menus transparent, no not that kind of transparent! Do they show your nutritional and allergen information and provide diners with all the information they need to make an informed decision? That kind of transparent. 

It might be time to update them.

A recent survey by Innova Market Insights has revealed that 70% of consumers want to understand the ingredients of the food they are eating, leading to mindful choices being labelled as a key food driver for 2018.

Lu Ann Williams, director of innovation at Innova Market Insights said “Today’s consumer displays a high level of mindfulness about well-being and the environment so it’s no surprise consumers are becoming increasingly mindful in their food choices, wanting to know what is in their foods to make decisions about health, sustainability and ethical issues.”

The study also found that almost half (49%) of respondents were influenced by claims on packaging with the figure rising by 7% from 2012. Are you correctly labelling your dishes?
